Cleaning Reusable Household Gloves

What is the best way to clean reusable household gloves? Cleaning the outside of them is easy, but when I need to clean them completely I don't know the best way to do it. Please help because I have several pairs and I don't want to throw them away when I can clean them and reuse them. Thanks so much!

Have you ever tried to throw them in a washing machine on gentle cycle and hang them up to dry?

You can also try turning them inside out and just cleaning the inside the same as you did the outside. Hang them up to dry.

I soak them in cool soapy water, rinse, then dry somewhere warm. I let them dry once outside in the sun and it didn't work out well-- dried them too much and got crispy and tore.

Turn them inside out, put them in, and wash with a mild soap as if you were going to wash your hands

I was the rubber gloves with warm water and mild soap. Allow to dry outside. Then when I bring it in, I use a wet wipe to wipe down.

Household gloves (rubber/latex) are easy to clean on the outside but takes a little more time to clean on the inside.


  • You say you have no problem cleaning the outside so no need to go over that procedure.
  • Cleaning the inside: clean outside of gloves as usual and dry well with a towel. Grab one glove at wrist and pull off over your fingers - straighten out any "fingers" tips - finish same with second glove.
  • Now wash the insides same as you did the outside - usually just use some dish soap (best if it has no moisturizers - I like original blue Dawn) rinse thoroughly and dry with towel before removing.
  • Now pull gloves off at fingertips so they are still inside out.
  • Find a place to hang your gloves to dry - laundry room is usually fine - hold one side of wrist part of both gloves together (gloves will be open) and hang with a clothes pin. (Hanging upside down/fingertips facing floor). You can use a coat
  • hanger by either using the one clothes pin to attach gloves to hanger or use one pin for gloves and attach another pin to hanger and gloves. Mainly you want gloves to be open so they can dry thoroughly. One hanger will hold several pairs of gloves.

  • When ready to use, remove from hanger and place hands inside and grab wrist and pull over fingers so outside is ready to use.
  • Inside of gloves do not need to washed after every use but you can sprinkle some baking soda inside to help dry and sanitize your gloves before the next use.
  • I always hang my gloves by the wrist (upside down/fingers facing floor) to make sure they are always dry.
  • here are a couple of links with similar instructions just in case something is not clear.
